It’s happening. The styles of our childhood and teenage years are returning, and millennials everywhere have some seriously mixed feelings. On one hand, it’s super fun to see some of our most-loved looks getting refreshed for 2024. On the other hand? We just can’t get behind low-rise jeans again. That was…a dark time (we’re kidding. Kinda.). Regardless of where you fall on the love-it or leave-it ’90s clothes spectrum, our list of some of the most wearable, on-trend, and not-at-all-scary Y2K pieces will have you smelling the CK1 all over again.

The key to incorporating 90s clothes back into your wardrobe is to pair them with classic, always-in-style pieces, or to add something undoubtedly new into the mix. You’ll never go wrong with a crisp white t-shirt, so wear one with a pair of ’90s cargo pants and chic grown-up jewelry. Or, you can pull one of those bold Y2K prints into an outfit that’s mostly one solid, neutral hue. Our goal is to nod to the ’90s without looking like we’re headed to a costume party (unless you’re into that, which we fully support!). Read on for our favorite picks from these fabulous ’90s collections!F

90s Prep Relaxed Button Up Shirt

There was a weird time in the '90s when we all relied on button-upss to "dress up" (you remember—those black pull-on stretch pants, a shirt, and these shoes. Right?). Whether you loved the look or not, there will never be a time when a button-up is a bad idea to have in your closet. This relaxed button-up shirt is a breezy option to pair with jeans, shorts, as a light layering name it. It comes in 5 colors and prints, too.

Speaking of go-to dress-up styles we reached for in the '90s, enter the pencil skirt. Why would we not love a stretch jersey fabrication, fun print, and the option to wear it with a graphic tee, tank top, or throw it on over a bodysuit and you're good to go.
